Joe Mauer, Maddie Bisanz Engaged: Twins Star Proposes To Girlfriend

Joe Mauer is officially off the market.

The Minnesota Twins star proposed to his girlfriend Maddie Bisanz over the weekend in Florida, Lindsay Guentzel of FOX Sports North reported on Sunday.

Mauer told Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press that the two "couldn't be happier" and that the marriage will make him a better ballplayer.

The 2009 AL MVP signed a $184 million, eight-year contract extension with the Twins last year. Mauer, 28, only played in 82 games in 2011. But he said earlier this month that he's healthy and ensured Twins fans that he will be ready for the 2012 season.
